> I have a Cisco 5509. I want to monitor ports on it. I have done an ifindex
on the router and have the ifnumbers. I went to Somix, got the template they
provide. It simply will not work (see below for error). I had no problem
what so ever monitoring some Cisco 1924 switches with somix's templates.
What is different about the 5509?

Target[aaa]: #S/P:bhdpub at

where S is the slot or module number (1-9) and P is the port #

Index numbers can change if you add or remove a module.
